  • D'ziner Snow will dry out over a period of time but can be re-hydrated & reused! However, D'ziner Snow cannot be rehydrated & therefore reused once it has been overexposed to direct UV sunlight.
  • Outdoors: D'ziner Snow changes its characteristics when exposed to UV light & breaks down rapidly over time. If D'ziner Snow is exposed to UV light, keep this period of time to a few hours. Outdoor use of D'ziner Snow is generally a one time affair, re-hydrating & reusing is difficult.

What if my child or pet eats it?

How do I decorate surfaces like trees?
  • Use a fine water spray to cover areas for decoration. Dust or sprinkle D'ziner Snow powder over the area and then cover with a mist of the water spray to create artificial snow.
  • Snow may need to be sprayed several times to allow for the beads to grow. Trees will also need to be sprayed every day or two as snow starts to shrink.
  • Another method that can be used is to make snow up firstly in a bucket and gently place it or sprinkle snow onto the leaves of the tree.

It's hot where I live, how long will it last in the heat?
